Top 5 Domain companies that we’d like to see go public

GoDaddy’s big day finally arrived today; the much-anticipated IPO took several years to materialize, and the biggest domain registrar in the world should be happy with the results.

There are several companies in the domain industry that should do well if they went public.

The process of having an initial public offering is complex, and the benefits from having an IPO must be evaluated along with any shortcomings.


Here are our top 5 domain companies we’d like to see on an IPO.

  • Uniregistry – Frank Schilling’s registry powerhouse formed a little over a year ago and it has become a magnet for domain investors and end users alike. The IPO would help fund further expansion in the US, and potentially Europe.
  • Sedo – The privately held corporation is mature and generates solid earnings every quarter. The IPO would help increase its footprint in the domain aftermarket.
  • Igloo – The domain brokerage firm is already at the top of its class, managing top tier portfolios. An IPO would help expand its already established management in markets such as China.
  • Dot .CLUB – One of the most popular gTLD registries, they manage their range of assets while expanding in joint ventures with .BAR. Tapping the night club and bar market would be the goal of an IPO.
  • Donuts – Possibly the biggest player in the gTLD arena, Donuts owns key domain extensions in a variety of flavors. An IPO would help fund a massive marketing effort to instill the new Internet namespace options directly to the minds of the consumer.

Which would be your favorite one?
